Paul Thompson, Head Coach China
Paul Thompson is head coach for the Chinese Rowing Federation. He talks about the challenges of coaching through a translator; getting visas to train in Europe, coaching catches and a relaxed recovery.
Learning to coach in a foreign language – Paul uses rock over, relax, legs first, power as his first words in Chinese!
I caught up with him at Henley Royal Regatta where the squad is racing after their Nottingham training camp.
